PM: MXGP of Switzerland


The third round of the FIM Motocross World Championship has officially started with the opening press conference today in Frauenfeld. 

Present for the conference was Infront Moto Racing CEO David Luongo, FIM/CMS Director Antonio Alia Portela, Organizer of the MXGP of Switzerland Presented by iXS Willy Laderach as well as Red Plate Holder Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Jorge Prado and Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team’s Jeremy Seewer. 

The last edition of the MXGP of Switzerland in 2018 saw some intense battles in both MXGP and MX2 and ended with the victories of Jeffrey Herlings and Jorge Prado on their road to win the World Title in their respective category.

Infront Moto Racing is excited to come back to Frauenfeld especially as the track has been completely renewed which will only add to the challenge for the riders. 

Let’s now see what the MXGP of Switzerland presented by iXS holds for us during this Easter period!

Infront Moto Racing CEO David Luongo: “I want to emphasise and thank Willy Laderach and his team for the amount of work done over the past four years to bring back the MXGP of Switzerland. It is good to be back in Frauenfeld where we had a great Grand Prix in 2018 and we are proud to be here this week. It is a great paddock, really comfortable combined with a great motocross track with very good and compact dirt. Also, most of the track can be seen by the public which will make an amazing weekend racing for all the fans” 

FIM/CMS Director Antonio Alia Portela: “I also wish to congratulate Willy Laderach and his team for making this project possible, the outcome of this success is the great number of riders that we are going to have this weekend. This is a special event as they will be racing on Saturday and Monday due to the Easter Sunday and everybody is excited and want to ride in Switzerland. It has been a long wait until we finally could come back to the country for a MXGP race and there will be plenty of spectators so I wish you all a nice and successful weekend. Thank you very much.”

Organizer of the MXGP of Switzerland Presented by iXS Willy Laderach: “It is nice to be here and finally organise this event. The track is good and the paddock is amazing. We are very happy and proud that Infront Moto Racing and the FIM validated our project and stop the long wait for another MXGP of Switzerland. The track is looking good and this is thanks to Infront Moto Racing’s and our track building team who did a very good job to make this circuit operational and ready for this weekend. Thank you everybody and welcome back to Switzerland”

Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Jorge Prado: “I am very happy to come and racing again in Switzerland. I have really good memories from last time when I won in MX2 class. It is very special to come back and really good to see Jeremy Seewer who is fighting for the MXGP title, being able to ride in his own country. I hope we can have a really nice racing and have a fun weekend.”

Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team’s Jeremy Seewer: “I am so amazed to see the passion going into this event since we arrived at the track. Coming here is so special and it feels amazing which gives me a big smile. As Jorge said, this is so important to have a local GP for riders as nothing beats the thousands of fans coming to see and support their local hero. That also makes the sport and history. I am very excited and ready to go!”
